It’s been a while since the last Killzone 2 update, so it was great to hear that Guerrilla Games is planning on releasing the new 1.21 patch early this week. There are a lot of fixes, but some of the major ones include the re-addition of bots to online play as well as unranked matches. Oh, and the zoom auto-aim exploit will be gone too, so no more cheating to get those headshots! Here’s the complete list of what the patch will add, taken from Seb Downie’s post at the official KZ2 forums:
-Increase of the standard points settings for Bodycount. Should ensure longer mode on heavily populated games.
-The return of Online Bots. Adding bots to an online game renders it ‘unranked’.
-The option to create unranked games. Players will be made aware that a game is unranked upon joining.
-Fix to Game Search functionality so correct maps are displayed.
-Standardization of the Y-Axis controls on the HGH Scout when zoomed with the Sniper Rifle.
-Fix to Sensitivity setting where the weapon animation did not follow the reticule correctly.
-Fix for auto-aim exploit when rapidly tapping zoom/fire.
-Fix to infrequent collision issues with C4 Proximity mines.
-Fix to list of games displayed on search.
-Stability fix relating to disconnect.
-Fix to ‘Clan’ button functionality in custom game creation settings.
We are also working on the next updates and here are some of the areas we are exploring and investigating for the future patches:
-Controls. Seeing about giving more options.
-Expanding on Join Game searches and options.
-Improving game and network stability.
-Collision exploits on maps.
-Improvements to help play with friends.
-More game creation options.
-More game options for clans.
-Fixes to Clans unexpectadly losing tournament rounds.
-Other minor fixes.
